The Special Place

"Not more surely is the place prepared for us in the heavenly mansions than is the special place designated on earth where we are to work for God." --COL, pg 327

I ponder it. There's so much purpose in a life lived for God. And I ask God, "Where's my special place?" and the answer comes, "Look around, my child. Wake up to the needs surrounding you! Have you been blind these past 4 months?"

Have you ever overlooked your special place?

I know I have. In Thailand, the needs were easy to spot. But on the home front, it took me a little longer. But with God's help, I slowly began to see the many mission fields here. And what mission fields they are!

I'll never give up my dream of returning to Asia. It's a dream that God has given me. But I also won't be such a fool as to ignore the pressing mission fields here, while I continue my education. God's special place for me right now---just happens to be right where I am. Special place, here I am. =)
